Oh, how thankful I am that He became incarnate of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and was made man. He appeared, radically entering the family systems of the human race. And together, with all the other families, my family is awaiting His second advent.
This is why Lutheran Indian Ministries exists. Jesus completed his mission on earth, now we are called to follow in his footsteps. Our mission is not yet complete, but we know with God all things are possible. And in the end, God will win. So we go. To equip those who have been found with the knowledge and the ability to go, and find the lost who have not yet heard the incredible news of who Jesus is and why it matters to them.
We must GO to equip the found and find the lost.
Many times, God comes to us so well disguised we do not see His image in the sea of humanity that surrounds us. In so many ways, we are like the innkeeper. He was busy with his job, earning a livelihood. He was stressed by the hordes of people who flooded into his town. His mind was on all of the things he needed to accomplish that evening, and he missed God knocking at his door.
